General information

Riga is the capital and largest city in Latvia, found on the mouth of the Daugava River in the Baltic Sea. It is the largest city of the Baltic states and has a population of over 600,000. Founded in 1201, the city was a former member of the Hanseatic league and home to many Germans. You can still see a heavy Germanic influence within the city. The city was part of the Swedish and Russian empires and then in 1918 the capital of the independent Latvian state. It remained the capital during the USSR and then the capital of the newly independent state. Nowadays, Riga is a modern capital city undergoing many restoration projects which have made it one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. Its Old Town is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and a favorite for many travelers.

Old town

House of Blackheads was first built in the 1300's as a house for the Brotherhood of Blackheads, a German association of unmarried merchant and ship owners. Originally founded as a military organization, it later became more of a social organization. The building was destroyed in the Second World War but has now been rebuilt to its former glory and is now a museum and concert hall.

St. Peter's Church was built in 1209, making it the oldest church in the city. It was destroyed in 1941 and reconstructed in 1973. The church has a large tower which one can take an elevator to the top and get a fantastic view of the city.

Built in 1211, the Riga Cathedral is considered to be the largest church in the Baltic region. Inside there is an impressive organ with over 6,000 pipes. The cathedral is found on the Dome Square, considered to be the heart of the city and has some lovely other buildings such as the Three Brothers, the oldest dwelling buildings in the city, the Latvian parliament and the Swedish Gate, the last gate of the old city walls.

Museums

Museum of the Occupation of Latvia 1941 – 1990 was founded in 1993 with the aim of educating the public on Latvia’s 51 years of occupation by the Soviets, the Nazis and then the Soviets again. Prior to its present state the building served as a museum to the Red Latvian Riflemen.

Built in the 16th century, the Riga Castle now houses two museums, the Latvian Museum of National History, containing a collection of over 1 million items from archaeological, numismatic, ethnographic and historic categories. The main exhibition concentrates on the history of Latvia from ancient times to the 20th century. The other museum is the Museum of Foreign Art.
